Three kids come to the rescue as a fire sparks up at an apartment complex in SE Oklahoma City, Wednesday evening. 

The kids saw flames and called 9-1-1, then tried to save a neighbor they thought was trapped before firefighters arrived on scene.

"We ran to the door and we tried to open it, it was locked so I kicked down the door and opened it. That's when I heard somebody fall, and that's when I left because of the smoke."
